presenting a united front. joining us from washington fox fox news chief analyst brit hume. there is a 65% point gap between democrats, 88% of them like the president's policies and republicans 23% don't like his policies. that's the largest gap ever, ever, in the history of this kind of polling. so, there is -- united against president obama's policies. i don't think the party is united but you disagree, huh? >> die, bill. i think the party is far more united than i imagined it could be a year ago. as you said a big part of that is president obama has succeeded in union fighting them that i don't think any republican or group of republicans could have. his policies have not only made it easier to join together to voted against them but they have also done poorly which has made them and to an increasing extent him unpopular and them, naturally, in a two-party more. so look at the races, particularly the one in massachusetts last week. the tea party activists were in there a lot of people thought state of massachusetts, tea party activists that's not but trouble for scott brown. scott brow

story tonight. the council on islamic american relations based in washington is objecting to any profiling of muslims or arabs at the airport or anywhere else. that, of course, is causing controversy as worldwide terrorism is now almost exclusively generated by muslims so why shouldn't they be profiled? joining us to answer the question, abraham hooper, the spokesman for care. you and i were talking before the program and you said muslims fly, too. these people don't care if they kill muslims. you have a 23-year-old guy floating around, he pays one way for a ticket, cash. i mean i would pull this guy out of the line i'm sorry and i would profile this guy all day long and you wouldn't? >> you mentioned at the top of the show that this chaos created by the incident is a victory for terrorists. you know what else is a victory for al-qaeda? profiling. al-qaeda's talking point is that the west is at war with all of islam and all muslims and when you profile people, when you pull them out of line based on the fact that they are muslim and or they look like they are arab, al-qaeda wins.

teaches politics. and from washington, fox news analyst and former spokeswoman for president bush the younger, dana. these numbers surprise you, dana? >> well, they're not a total surprise because what we've seen over the past several weeks is a steady decline in the up ins. and so i think that it's a sustained poll. initially a few months ago, you had a few of him -- polls showing him dipping below 50. got a lot of headlines. i think what concerns the white house is that this is across the board, every poll, believe me. you got to work really hard to get below 50% in the cbs poll as a democrat. >> now, why is it happening? what are the things that are driving his poll numbers down? >> i think that the national rejection of health care in these polls is a big deal. every time he talks about it, his approval numbers go down. i also think that there was probably some irrational exuberance about the obama presidency in february of last year. expectations that he couldn't possibly meet. but then over time, when they pushed for a stimulus package that no one thinks worked, the health c

the state of the union address, joining us from washington, fox news analyst laura ingraham. okay. what was your worst thing, the worst thing president obama did or said last night? >> i think the worst thing, bill, is this claim that the republicans aren't showing leadership when they say no to his policies. he repeated that in a few different ways. that's not leadership require a 60 vote majority for all these big issues. the american people want us to do these big things. they want us to work together. well, you know, frankly, there is not always a political solution to a substantive problem. i think that's a fundamental misreading of what's happened in these three elections. for him to say it's not leadership when mitch mcconnell, john boehner, john thune, paul ryan, and all these other guys have true ideological differences with what he is trying to do is preposterous. the republicans actually are doing what they are doing, bill, not because they have a personal animus towards the president, they are doing what they are doing because they think it's the best thing for the country.
